3-D Human Body

Richard Walker. DK, $17.99 (72p) ISBN 978-0-7566-7216-4
Lively and informative spreads, along with augmented reality technology, introduce readers to the human body. Beginning with essential building blocks of cells and DNA, charts, sidebars, diagrams, and cross-sections explore the structure and functions of skin, bones, and the brain, followed by insight into the body's various systems. Readers can download software from the publisher's Web site, which can be used in combination with a webcam to make six spreads turn into animated AR pop-outs on a computer screen. Those who don't use the multimedia effect can still learn plenty from the book's detailed mix of photographs, digital graphics, and engaging captions that illuminate how intricate bodily components work together. Available simultaneously: 3-D Dinosaur. Ages 9–12. (June)
